New Dharma Lending Library


We are now accepting donations of books you may like to contribute to our new Dharma Lending Library. Books about meditation and dharma are great but other books about mindful living and eating are appreciated also. You’re welcome to loan books to the library and take them out of circulation at any time. We will also be purchasing books to add to the library with monetary donations received. You can bring books and check them out on Tuesday evenings at our regular group practice.

Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation

This September Cenla Meditation Group will be launching an online book club. We will kick it off with the book Real Happiness by Sharon Salzberg and have the opportunity to take the 28-day Power of Meditation Challenge.

We will discuss the four types of meditation in each chapter and have the opportunity to practice one each week. The book is structured to help someone with no meditation experience get started in a personal practice they can build upon.

We will utilize Google Hangouts for the weekly online discussion on Sunday nights at 9pm CST. Don’t worry if you’ve never used it before. It’s easy! Instructions to follow later.

You can RSVP to the event on our Facebook page: Cenla Meditation Group. There is no cost to participate, but donations are always welcome.
